MIA

Thursday, February 28, 2013

I've been MIA....beading, beading and more beading. Costume is finally done, aside of a bit of finishing work. I'll try to post pics of the complete costume soon, but below are some in progress pics from last week. I spent literally 18 hours last weekend, and up to 3 hours a day on weekdays the last two weeks.

Cardio, steps, exercise, all have suffered. I tell people - you can do everything you want, just not at the same time. In this case, the exercise had to take a back seat to finishing this costume on time.







Every bead and every sequin....hand sewn. I think, no kidding, I passed the 120 hours mark sometime mid week - I lost count. At LEAST 120 hours. Possibly closer to 150 hours.

Competition is this weekend in Tacoma, Washington. Finally feel ready to go and have some FUN. I'd like to place in the competition, but more than anything I'm looking forward to having some fun and seeing old friends. Back to the business of steps, cardio and health on Monday.

I signed up for a 10K on Labor Day. I haven't done more than a 5K in many years, so it's a good "next step". :)

    How beautiful. I really admire you for completing your project. I have so many going on that I have not completed anything. You have inspired and motivated me to do this. I will concentrate on working on "one" project at a time. I love this!

Thank you for sharing. ~ Dee emoticon
